    Smile Question about Moving to NC

    If I were to move to NC eastern coast area. I know when your a resident of NC you need to get a PPP from the Sheriff but how does this affect someone who moves to NC and already owns handguns. I assume one is not needed for a long gun?

    Thanks in Advance,

    Tim

    PPP is not needed for a long gun. Only the NICS check.

    Regarding a PPP for what you own now and will bring into NC, simple answer is NO. A PPP is a Pistol Purchase Permit. You are not purchasing these already owned firearms. I can't cite it right now (I am sure the group will fill in the gaps) but I believe you don't need to notify LEO either.

    LEOs don't stop and ask for a PPP if you are carrying openly (although most non-gun folks think it is required). He or she, if there is RS will run your name and perhaps the serial #, but without RS, most areas of the State, you won't be challenged or harrassed open carrying, again at least be LEO.

    Now for peace of mind and perhaps ease of getting around NC open carrying (i.e., a car), if you have an OH Concealed Handgun Permit, it would be recognized in NC, at least until you establish permanent residence and perhaps obtain a NC CHP. But again, a person, being legally able and law abiding, can still open carry without a PPP or CHP.

    Confusing? If I missed anything regarding your question, just wait a few posts and you will be set straight.

    Welcome to NC.

    "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

    Northerner pretty much summed it up.

    No permit is needed to carry openly in the state, although there are restrictions dealing with where you can carry. You do not need to notify anyone when you move in with guns, assuming none of them are machine guns. Our Pistol Purchase Permit is just that- a permit required for purchasing pistols, not for carrying them, and not for purchasing rifles.. You also do not need to register your guns, either.

    Oh, you also need a PPP to purchase crossbows...because that makes sense.

    Thanks for the replies guys! I do appreciate it. Will be moving this summer. I had heard crossbows were reserved for disabled? I know in Ohio we have no restrictions but I do use a crossbow due to disability. I also have a medical statement to that fact if needed.

    Durham County is the only county in NC that requires Handgun registration.

    So, if You were to move to Eastern Carolina coastal area you should be in the clear.

    IANAL.

    No, they recently changed it. Crossbows are legal during regular archery season now.

    As far as the guns, just bring em with you.

    The law requiring a PPP for a crossbow came in at the same time as the law allowing anyone to hunt with a crossbow, IIRC.
